This Navajo teenager grew up on the oral history of her people and, specifically, her own family - passed on from her grandparents. But when this home-schooler began to express these stories herself, they came in the form of independent cinema. "In the Footsteps of Yellow Woman," her first movie receiving wide-spread festival exposure, comes to Prescott, AZ today at the Prescott Public Library.
Two bonuses with this fascainating interview - the music is by that amazing Dineh Indie rock band Blackfire - a member of which contributed music to "In the Footsteps of Yellow Woman" and there's a shout-out in the first section for the Northland Cares fundraiser, Dining Out For Life - one of our favorite dates on the fundraising calendar in Prescott.
